Salvation-as-Healing

"The community’s work was to restore human life in paradise by healing the sick, instructing the ignorant, loving its neighbors, liberating the captives, resisting evil, practicing nonviolence, and appreciating the beauties of life. This understanding of salvation permeated many regions and branches of the first millennium of Christianity."    - Rita Nakashima Brock & Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parkera ; Saving Paradise: How Christianity Traded Love of This World for Crucifixion and Empire, p. 170


"Jesus’ entire ministry of healing the sick, caring for the poor, and forgiving sinners can be said to be a demonstration of restorative justice."

   - Derek Flood ; Healing the Gospel: A Radical Vision for Grace, Justice, and the Cross


“It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”    - Jesus ; Mark 2.7
